Equipment

  • Stove Top
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large carrots peeled and diced
  • 4 large parsnips peeled and diced
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 cup turkey broth
  • 1 cup white mushrooms diced
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1 tablespoon fresh flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1-½ cups turkey gravy
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 3 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey
  • 2 ready to bake rolled pie crust
  • 1 egg
  • *Spinach for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large skillet melt two tablespoons of butter on high heat. Add in the carrots, parsnips, celery, and onion. Mix well and add in the turkey broth. Cook on medium-high heat with lid on for 10 minutes, Stirring occasionally.
  • Once the veggies are cooked add in the diced mushrooms, green peas, parsley, poultry seasoning, black pepper and salt. Mix well and add in the leftover turkey gravy.
  • In a small  bowl, combine the milk and cornstarch until well blended. Pour the mix into the pot and mix until well incorporated. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until the mixture thickens. *If it's still not thick cook a few more minutes. Add in the turkey and mix well. Remove from heat and set to the side.
  • Roll out one of the pie crust (make sure you let your pie crust sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes). Place in a pie dish and crimp edges. Poke the bottom of the pie crust with the tines of a fork (a few times). Pre-bake crust for 10 minutes.
  • Remove crust from oven, pour the chicken pot pie filling into the pre-baked crust. Roll out the second pie crust. Place on top of the pot pie. Carefully crimp edges to secure pie crust. Cut a few slits in the top of the pie crust. Brush the top of the pie crust with a beaten egg.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until pot pie is golden brown. Slice and serve immediately upon being cooked and place on a bed of spinach if you'd like!

Notes

  • Milk - You can use whole, 2%, or even skim milk for this recipe. You could also use half and half or thinned out heavy cream.
  • Protein - If you don't want to use turkey you can use cooked rotisserie chicken.
  • Vegetables - If you don't like parsnips you can remove them. You could also add white potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, and/or corn kernels.
  • Crust - Instead of pie crust you can use raw biscuits on top or even puff pastry.
